HLTAID004 Provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting

This course will provide you with the skills and knowledge to apply first aid in an education and care setting, in the wider community and in your home.

Who is it for?

This course is designed for anyone who is required to hold a first aid qualification in an education and care setting or who would like to extend on the ‘Provide first aid’ course with additional information specific to children. The qualification expires in three years and also requires the CPR component to be updated within 12 months to ensure the certification is current.

Our workshop philosophy

The idea of the workshop is to present first aid scenarios in a safe and secure but fun way to ensure that each learner has the best outcome. For full day workshops, we have a morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea break so that everyone stays fresh and focused!
